Worry. Fear. Regret.
All common themes I hear from incarcerated youth. When I look back on my own life, and I’m truly honest with myself, there was once upon a time when my own life was ruled by worry, fear, regret. I have never been incarcerated. But I was a prisoner of my own mind. A prisoner of my past, my faults, my wrongs, my circumstances, my failures, my doubts, my worries, my fears, my regrets.
“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side… Our help is in the name of the Lord…” Psalm 124:1, 8 KJV
This is my testimony. If it had not been for Jesus, my help, on my side, I would be trapped in a vicious cycle of worry, fear, and regret. Because of Jesus, I have come to know and experience true liberty.
As I told my kids the other day, I feel like I have shared God more than I ever did before! Thing is, psychology will only take you so far, God takes you where you need to go. Psychology can only aide in changing to an extent, when God gets involved a transformation takes place that is long lasting and life changing. Psychology may help you learn to deal with and cope with your worry, fear and regret. But God says, Cast your worry, fear and regret on Me, I will bear them for you because I care for you.
God wants us to be free, to live free, experience true freedom and liberty today!
